Sharing High-level findings from study

The request was successful.

Dear NHS England,

The press release provided in one of my previous responses (FOI: 010611) NHS England stated:

"From March 2015, high level findings from the latest analysis were also shared by
the programme leads with policy colleagues at NHS England, Department of Health,
health unions including the British Medical Association, Royal Colleges, Deloitte and
the Health Select Committee."

Please can you provide copies of the emails (or any other communications, such as copies of minutes/presentations etc) which shared the new analysis's findings with 1) policy colleagues at NHS England, 2) Department of Health, and 3) Deloitte.

These communications are likely to come from Sir Bruce Keogh, but may have been sent by someone else at NHS England on instruction.

Please provide all attachments with emails/communications. Please provide any replies. Please reveal the sender/recipients as much as Section 40 of the FOIA will allow. Please state the number of any communications removed under any exemption.

Yours faithfully,

J P Sturgeon

Dear Dr Sturgeon,

 

Re:      Freedom of Information request (Our Ref: FOI-022660)

 

Thank you for your Freedom of Information (FOI) request dated 20 October
2016. Please accept our sincere apologies for the delay in providing a
response to your request.

 

Your exact request was:

“The press release provided in one of my previous responses (FOI: 010611)
NHS England stated:

 

"From March 2015, high level findings from the latest analysis were also
shared by the programme leads with policy colleagues at NHS England,
Department of Health, health unions including the British Medical
Association, Royal Colleges, Deloitte and the Health Select Committee."

 

Please can you provide copies of the emails (or any other communications,
such as copies of minutes/presentations etc) which shared the new
analysis's findings  with 1) policy colleagues at NHS England, 2)
Department of Health, and 3) Deloitte.

 

These communications are likely to come from Sir Bruce Keogh, but may have
been sent by someone else at NHS England on instruction.

 

Please provide all attachments with emails/communications. Please provide
any replies. Please reveal the sender/recipients as much as Section 40 of
the FOIA will allow. Please state the number of any communications removed
under any exemption.”

 

NHS England holds some information relevant to your request.

 

Please find this information contained within the attached PDF documents.

 

Please note that some of the information provided has been redacted under
Section 40 (personal information) of the FOI Act, as the information
constitutes third party data. Section 40(2) provides that personal data
about third parties is exempt information if one of the conditions set out
in section 40(3) is satisfied.

 

Under the FOI Act disclosure of this information would breach the fair
processing principle contained in the Data Protection Act (DPA), where it
would be unfair to that person/is confidential. Releasing this information
would breach the data protection protocol as it would be unfair to release
individuals’ details when they did not intend them to be used in such a
way. Section 40 is an absolute exemption and therefore not subject to the
public interest test when considering disclosure of information.

licence. Please see the NHS England Terms and conditions on the following

have the right to ask for an internal review by writing to us, within two
months of the date of this letter, to:

 

NHS England

PO Box 16738

REDDITCH

Email: [2][NHS England request email]

 

Please quote the reference number FOI-022660 in any future communications.

 

If you are not content with the outcome of the internal review, you have
the right to apply directly to the Information Commissioner for a
decision. The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) can be contacted at:

on the disclosure of information under the FOI Act, your request will be
anonymised and published on our website as part of our disclosure log.
